About GlassWire

GlassWire is a network monitoring and security platform that provides businesses with tools including real time network monitoring, a built-in firewall, internet security features, alerts, bandwidth usage monitoring, server monitoring, and more. It offers an Android app to allow users to monitor networks on-the-go using any internet-enabled Android device.

With the visual network monitoring tools within GlassWire, businesses can view past and present network activity and deep dive into which applications use the most bandwidth. All data is presented in easy-to-digest visual reports and graphs in order to help users better understand how the network is being used. Network usage can be tracked by a specific time, day, week, or month using the timeline view.

Businesses can use GlassWire to track which applications are communicating with the network, how much bandwidth is being used, which apps are sharing data, who is using a specific network or WiFi connection, and more. Alerts can be triggered to let users know when network changes occur or when threats are detected.

Awesome piece of Software

Reviewed on 2/8/2019

SUPER AWESOME BRO

SUPER AWESOME BRO

Pros

I love this software. I am very found of good software, useful software, which now a days are very scarce. I can not thank developers enough for making a software which shows what application uses the internet and uploads/downloads to what address. This kind of detailed information hub reviles the vulnerability which I didn't know was there before. It also enabled me with the power to block the traffic. Simply "It Is AWESOME"

Cons

I don't know of any cons yet, I have used just the trial. But it will be very bad if they record our browsing history and logins. Which they say they don't but real truth will come forward in time.

Response from GlassWire

Hello Saqlain, thanks for your review!

You wrote "it will be bad if they record our browsing history and logins". We agree!

That's why your data never leaves your device. We couldn't record it even if we wanted since we never have any access to it. https://www.glasswire.com/privacy/

You can confirm this by finding your data usage database on your own PC. https://www.glasswire.com/userguide/#Moving_Database

We are not a cloud service that keeps your data on our servers.

The best firewall for non-experts and the remote technical team

Reviewed on 15/8/2022

Pros

We used to buy antivirus licenses that have a firewall as one of their features. But we didn't like it very much for our remote employees. Many times it was necessary to create unsigned connections with the application server, so it became cumbersome for the technical team. With Glasswire, we can give the remote employee a short training on how to manage and configure the firewall. And it's quite convenient, since we purchase personal use licenses for employee-owned workstations. We chose it mainly for its ease of use. Its performance and functionality makes it compare with solutions that integrate everything. At least in our experience, it's better if one app doesn't take care of everything, that allows us to decentralize until it hurts. Monitoring our windows server becomes easier when some novice has typed something he shouldn't

Cons

I wouldn't change anything. We leave that up to the developer. The tool does its job perfectly. I would only add one option, that it be multiplatform, we also want it in linux.

Utterly annoying

Bought it. Paid for it. Expected it to work properly. Liked the advertised features. HOWEVER, absolutely HATE the constant interruptions, pop-ups, computer slow-downs, and overall experience. Will be cancelling it momentarily (or whenever I get around to doing it). Software should be neither seen, nor heard from, if it is to be effective. Wives are for interruptions!!!!

Pros

I appreciate what GlassWire is "trying" to do, but this is not what it actually does. It does give "additional" information about the status of my computer and its workings, as well as its internet connectivity, but it does so at a very annoying expense.

Cons

I HATE, yes - absolutely hate the constant interruptions, pop-ups, non-interesting information and idiotic colors that are EXTREMELY annoying. I now remember why I had GlassWire before and why I eventually cancelled it. Software should be neither seen, heard, nor annoying in order to be effective. I HATE the products, and really don't care what it does. If it's doing its job, it should do it quietly, unobtrusively, and without interrupting my work (or pleasure). We already have too many interruptions in life.

Response from GlassWire

GlassWire's alerts are all optional and can be displayed any way you prefer, or not at all.

Just go to the top left GlassWire menu and choose "settings" then "security".

For the colors you don't like, we literally have 15 different color options from black and white, to dark themes, to more colorful. Just go to the top left menu and choose "themes".

Overall experience with Glasswire is really impressive. Due to Glasswire, I have managed to save a significant amount of bandwidth usage from unwanted applications and processes.

Pros

Glasswire lets you monitor your network usage and present it with colourful and insightful charts and graphs. You can view the usage by dates, weeks, months and also have access to the usage history. Furthermore, it lets you see which applications are using the bandwidth and the amount of consumption. Whenever new application or process starts using the bandwidth you are notified with a notification from Glasswire.

Cons

The only issue I see with Glasswire is not being able to see which websites are using the bandwidth and the amount. It only shows particular web browser has used the bandwidth, not by a particular website.

I use it for one of the home computers that I have used for visiting all sorts of links online. I installed Glasswire to ensure that I had some control over what traffic I was involved with.

Pros

Glasswire delivers an overview of the traffic that is on the network I am using.
This enables me to see first hand if something is up.

Cons

It could be cheaper for a PRO version as the features in the free is allright, one would like to have more as it is a very good program, but the price is a bit high.
